A Boy was born

A Boy was born in Bethlehem;
rejoice for that, Jerusalem!

Alleluya!

He let himself a servant be,
that all mankind he might set free:

Alleluya!

Then praise the Word of God who came
to dwell within a human frame:

Alleluya!

–From the album Britten: A Ceremony of Carols; Rejoice in the Lamb; A Boy Was Born. Benjamin Britten (1913-1976); German carol, sixteenth century, tr. Percy Dearmer (1867-1936)
